Clint Dempsey is Mr. Clutch and USMNT's greatest-ever player

Returning hero Clint Dempsey netted a hat trick as United States thrashed Honduras.

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- A strong argument for Clint Dempsey as the best American player ever could have been made long before Friday night, when his 54-minute hat trick in a 6-0 drubbing of Honduras put the U.S. back on course to qualify for next summer's World Cup in Russia.
